About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to travel and see as much as possible

ABOUT ME

easy-going, low maintenance, as carefree as possible. an independent wanderer if you will.

PHILOSOPHY

"Tao produced the One. The One produced the two. The two produced the three. And the three produced the Ten Thousand Things. The Ten Thousand Things carry the yin and embrace the yang, and through the blending of the material force (chi), they achieve harmony."
-Tao Te Ching

"I know not what life is, nor death.
Year in year out-all but a dream.
Both Heaven and Hell are left behind;
I stand in the moonlit dawn,
Free from clouds of attachment."
-Uesugi Kenshin

"My life
came like dew
disappears like dew.
All of Naniwa
is dream after dream."
-Toyotomi Hideyoshi
